Framework For Consultation on ''Foreign Languages in Irish Education'': opportunities for ClipFlair

9/23/2014 - Laura

The Department of Education and Skills in Ireland has recently  published the Framework For Consultation on ''Foreign Languages in Irish Education'':

This is an opportunity for us and our Associate Partners to highlight the importance of the multimedia literacy in language teaching and the advantages of introducing audiovisual translation activities as part of the curriculum, especially since the European Commission is placing much emphasis on the Digital Agenda for European citizens.

A meeting of One Voice for Languages is scheduled for Oct 18th in Dublin and this issues will be raised. I have already sent written suggestions to OVFL along those lines.

Fingers crossed!

Collaboration with the Camelot project

6/2/2014 - Stavroula

Ton Koenraad, member of the Camelot project, reports on the Camelot August newsletter:

In the beginning of May we attended the TISLID'14 conference 'Technological Innovation for Specialized Linguistc Domainsat the University of Salamanca (USAL) in Ávila (Spain). One of the reasons to select this conference was our intention to disseminate the Camelot project and discuss machinima ideas and applications for content oriented language learning approaches and CLIL. So with several delegates I elaborated on this. E.g. with the coordinator of the eCLIL project I discussed the idea that Camelot could offer the production of additional 3D visualisation elements for the storyline as developed in their project.
I also 
contacted the coordinator of the ClipFlair project. They are interested in collaboration and see a win/win as they could do with more Open Source 
video materials.
